These colourful window cards make great Thank You or Birthday cards. As no glue is needed for sticking on the sequins, it's a very fun but easy activity for younger children. Only a little help is needed from an adult to cut the window and assemble the card.

Time: 15 minutes

Level: Medium

Construction paper or thin card

Materials ready to go

First we will make the window
Cut out two squares of sticky back plastic, one slightly large than the other. The smallest one should be just slightly larger than the size of window you want to have in your card.
